Virtual Servers (Smart VPS)

Smart VPS servers are kernel-based virtual machines (KVM) with fully dedicated resources and no noisy neighbors.

What is a Smart VPS Server?

More specifically, Smart virtual private server (VPS) is a kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) with fully dedicated CPU, RAM and storage resources. The underlying server hardware is not overbooked, which ensures stable workloads and eliminates noisy neighbor's effect, that is often present with standard virtual servers.

How can I get Smart VPS servers?

Smart VPS Servers have pre-built resource capacity and are deployed by a fully automated provisioning system that runs a multi-step server preparation process to give you a clean and safe server each time on-demand. You get Linux Smart VPS servers deployed in 2 to 10 minutes, while Windows Smart VPS servers take around 20 minutes to be deployed.

Smart VPS servers are billed on an hourly or fixed-term basis, with monthly, quarterly, semi-annual and annual billing cycles available. You may order Smart VPS servers through your Client Portal or automate provisioning via Cherry Servers API.

What are available Smart VPS server plans?

There are 6 Smart VPS plans available in EU-Nord-1 region: SMART8, SSD SMART8, SMART16, SSD SMART16, QUAD SMART and HEXA SMART.

Each Smart VPS plan has 10TB of free traffic package included by default, according to our Bandwidth Policy.

What operating systems are available?

We support the following operating systems at the moment:

  • Ubuntu - versions 16.04, 18.04 and 20.04 available;

Additional IP Addresses

In additional to the static Management IP address that is automatically assigned to every server upon deployment, you may add a number of additional IP addresses to your Smart VPS server:

  • Floating IP. A plublic IPv4 address that can be instantly moved from one server to another within the same region.
  • DDoS Protected Floating IP. A floating IP address that has an additional layer of DDOS scrubbing protection applied in real-time.
  • IP Subnet. A public IP subnet with an included gateway.

    Features

    Elastic Block Storage

    Elastic Bloc Storage is a powerful & secure software-defined data storage, that is perfectly suited for public and private cloud environments, or Kubernetes clusters.

    Private VLAN Subnet

    Private VLAN Subnet is a virtual local area network (VLAN) interface that groups servers within a Team to enable private interactions, as if the servers were attached to the same wire.

    Monitoring

    Monitoring is based on a Sensu agent that is automatically installed on every pre-built server to track its CPU, memory, network and disk performance in real-time.

    Out-of-band Management Console

    Out-of-band management (OOBM) Console is a remote server management technology that uses the Remote Frame Buffer protocol (RFB) to remotely control another computer through a Virtual Network Computing (VNC) graphical desktop-sharing system.

    Server Tags

    Server tagging is a way to mark your cloud infrastructure resources in any organizational pattern of your choice, which helps you organize, control and monitor your cloud resources better.

    Cloud-init Service

    Cloud-init is a service that allows you fetch user data when provisioning new servers via API.
